Oilier Stories Hnvc Circulated Neigh borhood in Past Years Concerning Existence of Monster Supposed to Have Escaped from a Circus. Probably one of tho greatest sen sations that has visited Damascus in many a day was launched one day two weeks ago' when Fred Greeley, a reliable and truthful man who lives between Tyler Hill and Galilee, went to Tyler Hill and told how he had seen a snake that was between twenty and thirty feet long and was as big around as an ordinary stove pipe. Mr. Greeley said tht he was out picking blackberries on his farm, which Is known as the old Greeley place and is situated somewhat southwest of the main line between Tyler Hill and Galilee, and while walking around among the bushes he started to part two bushes to go through them and in doing so he saw a log lying on the ground and was just in the act of stepping on it when the apparent log commenced to move. Ho ran back a ways and then saw that it was a monster snake, or Boa Constrictor, and that it moved along lazily with no attempt to harm him nor to run away. It gradually made its way into the thick under growth and disappeared, and the trail it left was just the same as though a large log had been dragged along the ground. Mr. Greeley s story was called a joke by everyone who heard it ex cept some of the old timers around Tyler Hill, who have heard of this monster before and took considerable stock in tho story. Several years ago Sidney Brush and his sister were coming from Milanville along the Frosty Hollow road and they told at that time of seeing an extremely large snako along the road, but from that time to this it has never been seen, or at least it has never been re ported. Possibly it has been seen but no one had the nerve to say they l.nrl t fnn-m .ltfl, !.,... ...... .1.1 jiuu iscuii H lui ictu inai iuki wuuiu bo ridiculed. It seems a pretty big story to swallow but facts seem to bear out Mr. Greeley that such a snake exists in the wilds of northern Wayne. About fifteen years ago a small cir cus that was traveling over tho Erie lmrl n omoll iirrnnlr hafmoon Pnili ton and Narrowsburg and the car that contained the snakes was nartlv snaites escaped, among tnem tnree largo ones known as Boa Constric tors.

How to Build Up or Tear Down This Community The Home Merchant WHY are communities, towns and cities? Have you ever asked your self this question? Did you think they 'just hnppencd, or had you ever thought that there was a special need for them? In the be ginning of time as far back as history takes us we find that MEN HAVE BANDED THEMSELVES TOGETHER FOR MANY AND OB VIOUS REASONS, chief among which aro the benefits to be gained from organized society as a social, intellectual, spiritual and commercial center. Collectively wo aro strong, forceful means to attain a growth which will give to us and our progeny opportunities for better living to develop our moral, spiritual and intellectual life, tho things for which we were created. THEREFORE THE SUCCESS AND HAPPINESS OF EVERY CITI ZEN OF ANY COMMUNITY LIES IN THAT COMMUNITY AND THE GOOD IN ITS UPBUILDING. Now, then, if wo aro to succeed as must not only strive for our own personal success and welfare, BUT MUST GIVE OF OUR WORK AND SUBSTANCE UNSELFISHLY TO HELP THE OTHERS. Everything we do to help In tho upbuilding and advancement of our city wo do Jnst that much toward our own personal success. No man can live and prosper unto himself alone, FOR WE ARE INTERDEPENDENT, and, realizing this, if we as citizens will nil unite and pull together for tho common good wo will prosper as n city and consequently as individuals. Well paved streets and sidewalks, forced sanitary laws, wefl regulated and energetic police force, competent flro fighting equipment and rigid building regulations nro economic necessities and tlierefore they more largely affect us as a community than ns individuals. But beyond this and underlying It all and upon which rests the foundation of tho whole is THE SUCCESS OF THE BUSINESS MAN. ' This man makes an Investment, goes Into some kind of puts his money at stake, employs labor THIS MAN IS TnE CORNERSTONE you should rally around and support. THE SUCCESS OF A TOWN DEPENDS ON THE SUCCESS OF ITS BUSINESS MEN, WHILE THE SUCCESS OF THE BUSINESS MEN DEPENDS ON SUPPORT THEY RECEIVE FROM THE PEOPLE AT LARGE, EACH BEING, HOWEVER, DEPENDENT ONE ON THE OTHER. No merchant can succeed without the lutely and entirely dependent on tho custom of each and every individual who has a penny to spend, tho lltUo mite of tho volume on which ho runs his business. The merchant, having plenty of competition, must, in order to get the peoplo's patronage, figure his prices close and offer to them tho very best inducements possible. The merchant pays large rentals, sides employing many clerks and assistants, In order to maintain and conduct his business in such n manner as to meet emphasize it again-HE MUST HAVE niS BUSINESS PAY. This community has somo as fine flno a set of men as you will find nnywhero on tho face of the globe liberal, big hearted, progressive men. No better retail stores, no better wholesale or Jobbing houses, no better banks, no tor churches, no better municipal or than right here in your homo town; all absolutely all made possible only by and through tho co-operation and generous giving of tho business men. But, my good friends, with all of there are some things being done today IN TnE PATn OF OUR GREATER GROWTH and further develop ment differences, if you please, which are to continue to grow and prosper. To bo continued under tho title, "HELP YOURSELF BY HELPING YOUR TOWN." DOG DAYS ARE NOW HERE. Tho dog day season is hero and the dog star will reign until August 20. It is during this period that dogs are supposed to become mad quicker than at any other time of the year. On the farm, pests and destructive Insects are more numerous than at any other time of the summer, it is said. There has long been a super stition that the water in creeks and rivers is tainted and poisonous to the human body during the 'period known as dog days, but the average boy is willing and ready to tako great chances these sultry days, as attest ed by the scores who may bo seen dally enjoying a swim in tho Lacka waxen and Dyberry rlvors.

A writer in a city paper says the reason why so many boys leave the farm Is because the cooking is so poor. The man who wrote this didn't know what he was talking about. Cooking on tho farm is llko it is in towns and cities, some good and some not, but as a rule no class of peoplo lives as well as the prosper ous farmer. It Is not because they do not have an abundance of good food that causes so many boys to leave the farm. Wo venture to say that most of tho boys who leave the farm wish many times that they might take a few meals at tho old home again. Meadvllle Messenger. COMING EVENTS.

Honesdalo has been districted and solicitors appointed to sell tickets for tho Chautauqua.

The tickets won't be any cheaper by waiting $2 is the possible lowest price for a season ticket and when It is considered that this averages' only 13 cents for each entertainment against 35 and 50 cents for single admission tick ets, it is absurd to expect to get them any cheaper.

Monday evening after supper Julius and a friend about the same age, Edward Graves, hired a canoe at McMurray's boat' livery and went on tho lake for a row.
